How to argue effectively
By robsbird


I argue very well. Ask any of my remaining friends. I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don't even invite me. You too can win arguments. Simply follow these rules:

Drink liquor.
Suppose you are at a party and some hotshot intellectual is expounding on the economy of Peru, a subject you know nothing about. If you're drinking some health-fanatic drink like grapefruit juice, you'll hang back, afraid to display your ignorance, while the hotshot enthralls your date. But if you drink several large martinis, you'll discover you have STRONG VIEWS about the Peruvian economy. You'll be a WEALTH of information. You'll argue forcefully, offering searing insights and possibly upsetting furniture. People will be impressed. Some may leave the room.

Make things up.
Suppose, in the Peruvian economy argument, you are trying to prove that Peruvians are underpaid, a position you base solely on the fact that YOU are underpaid, and you'll be damned if you're going to let a bunch of Peruvians be better off. DON'T say: "I think Peruvians are underpaid." Say instead: "The average Peruvian's salary in 1981 dollars adjusted for the revised tax base is $1,452.81 per annum, which is $836.07 before the mean gross poverty level."

NOTE: Always make up exact figures.
If an opponent asks you where you got your information, make THAT up too. Say: "This information comes from Dr. Hovel T. Moon's study for the Buford Commission published on May 9, 1982. Didn't you read it?" Say this in the same tone of voice you would use to say, "You left your soiled underwear in my bathroom."

Use meaningless but weighty-sounding words and phrases.
Memorize this list:

Let me put it this way
In terms of
Vis-a-vis
Per se
As it were
Qua
Ipso facto
Ergo
So to speak

You should also memorize some Latin abbreviations such as "Q.E.D.", "e.g.", and "i.e." These are all short for "I speak Latin, and you don't." Here's how to use these words and phrases. Suppose you want to say, "Peruvians would like to order appetizers more often, but they don't have enough money."

You never win arguments talking like that. But you WILL win if you say, "Let me put it this way. In terms of appetizers vis-a-vis Peruvians qua Peruvians, they would like to order them more often, so to speak, but they do not have enough money per se, as it were. Ergo, ipso facto, case closed. Q.E.D."

Only a fool would challenge that statement.

Use snappy and irrelevant comebacks.
You need an arsenal of all-purpose irrelevant phrases to fire back at your opponents when they make valid points. The best are:

You're begging the question.
You're being defensive.
Don't compare apples to oranges.
What are your parameters?

This last one is especially valuable. Nobody (other than engineers and policy wonks) has the vaguest idea what "parameters" means.

Don't forget the classic: YOU'RE SO LINEAR.

Here's how to use your comebacks:

You say: As Abraham Lincoln said in 1873...
Your opponent says: Lincoln died in 1865.
You say: You're begging the question.
You say: Liberians, like most Asians...
Your opponent says: Liberia is in Africa.
You say: You're being defensive.
You say: Since the discovery of the incandescent light bulb...
Your opponent says: The light bulb is an invention.
You say: Well DUH!

Compare your opponent to Adolf Hitler.
This is your heavy artillery, for when your opponent is obviously right and you are spectacularly wrong. Bring Hitler up subtly. Say, "That sounds suspiciously like something Adolf Hitler might say," or "You certainly do remind me of Adolf Hitler."

Well my friend i'm one of the persons that you called these names on the other thread that was locked down. What i'm thinking is that you have lots of skeltons in your closest and that why you are so addimate on the teaching of the bible, now i forgive you for calling me all those names because you donot know me as a person and i think that i have done more to spred gods word than you will ever do in your life. I think the bible was not even started until 2000 yrs ago and it has been rewritten numerous times, with lots of errors. Carbon tests have shown life/ cilivation dates back to 6,000/8,000 yrs. Now maybe god stepped in and changed everything 2,000 yrs. ago. atleast that's what the bible says. But then dates and days are not numbered when a peson lives for 900 yrs.as in the old testament. It don't happen period, so that in itself doesn't make sence. Evoloution i do think is very possible and i do think it should be taugh in schools. I do however disagree that the lords prayer is forbidden in schools or before a sports event. With that said Robsbird i still think you are a good person and have your convictions, they're are just overboard in todays life style and will make more enemies than friends and run people away from church than bring them in.

:lol: :lol: Im not trying to be difficult, or religeous as you guys like to go on with. the bible has been translated from one language to another language or even dialects of language. there are commentary bibles that parallel with the there interpretation. But those are for study purpose. there are over 23,000 transcripts of the originals to prove the accuracy of the bible. theres no doubt about the accuracy. the dead sea schrolls are also excellent proof of the accuracy of the bible. the difference is, I trust it, I believe it from the first statement (In the beginning to the last word AMEN and I believe even the maps) and im glad you helped your church. (no charge I hope) and as for teaching I think you said you did that, excellent. I guess my most exciting time of teaching was when I taught over 300 pastors in a confrence in Peru. However the Bible is accurate and you can count on that. If you know of a flaw or a mistranslated word please share that. Ill pass that on and we will get it corrected. thanks rob
